Baby: Week 36
Your eyes have pigment now, but probably not their final colour
Your lungs are the last system to reach maturity. A normal breathing pattern won’t occur until a few hours after birth. The lungs secrete surfactant to keep the lung tissue from sticking together when you utter your first cry.
You’re continuing to add fat and fine-tuning your brain and nervous system.
Your eyes have pigment now, but probably not their final colour. A caucasian baby will probably be born with dark blue eyes, and her true colour may not show itself for weeks or months. A baby of African or Asian descent would have very dark gray or brown eyes, but again the exact shade isn’t determined for months.
